Welcome to La Conner and the 2020 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival! Surrounded by the Salish Sea and farmland filled with tulip and daffodil bulbs, our waterfront town is ready for your visit. La Conner’s boardwalk, waterfront hotels, farm-to-table restaurants, boutiques, and museums make it the perfect Tulip Festival vacation home base!
A letter from Roozengaarde (March 21, 2020)
Dear Friends and Flower Fans.
Public health experts and Washington governor Jay Inslee have asked us all to do our part to help stop the spread of Coronavirus. Following these recommendations, we have made the difficult decision to close our display garden and flower fields to the public until further notice. This is not a decision that we made lightly and it will have tremendous immediate and long lasting impacts on our business, family, and local community. We ask that you do your part to help as well.
PLEASE STAY HOME AND STOP THE SPREAD!
When updates are made, we will share them. Please sign up for emails on our Tulips.com homepage or notifications on Facebook if you are interested in updates as soon as we have them to share.
Our goal for the spring remains the same: to share the beauty of our blooms with everyone. Flower images, video content, learning opportunities and more will be shared on our Facebook page during this closure and through the spring. Thank you for your continued loyalty and understanding during these unprecedented times.
Whether this continues for a couple weeks or through the spring, we understand there will be frustration and disappointment from many who are left unable to see our beautiful tulips in bloom. We will be feeling crushed as well. The spring season represents 90 percent of our business. 10 months of planning, preparation, work and anticipation has already been put in by our family and staff.
We know our farm and flowers mean something special to so many we will do our very best to share as much as possible with you all to add a little beauty, brightness, and joy to your days.
Our primary concern is for the safely, health and well-being of our employees, visitors, and community. After that, we hope to make it to next spring to share our beauty with the entire Skagit Valley and beyond once again!
What’s New for Skagit Valley Tulip Festival 2020?
In 2019 another generation of Skagit Valley natives decided it was time to return home and give back to the community that raised them by purchasing Tulip Town to carry its rich tradition into the future for many more to enjoy.
Their goal is to keep the Tulip Town farm in good agricultural production. Excellent landscaping techniques are featured throughout the farm, with apple trees, gardens, nursery trees, annuals, and perennials. They’re always striving to maintain top quality products and keep the farm a strong agricultural statement the community can be proud of.

Plan Your Trip
Because of the popularity of the Tulip Festival, be sure to plan your trip wisely and make your hotel reservations before you travel to Skagit Valley! La Conner has a wide range of lodging options from Skagit Valley’s only waterfront lodge to a historic Bed & Breakfast. We strongly recommend making dinner reservations during the Tulip Festival. Leave your car keys in your hotel room when exploring La Conner as all of our restaurants, boutiques and museums are an easy stroll. Don’t miss experiencing the La Conner Historic Walking Tour, Sculpture Tour and boardwalk when you come in from the blooms!
